May Tournament, Day 8: Oosunaarashi out (shoulder)


Both yokozuna stay in the lead at 7-1. Hakuho got the freebie win since Oosunaarashi did suffer a shoulder injury when tumbling with Kisenosato off the dohyo yesterday. He’ll go up against Myogiryu tomorrow. Harumafuji got an impressive yorikiri victory over Ichinojo and faces M5 Tamawashi tomorrow, who has two wins so far and has not been particularly successful in the top half of the makuuchi.

Terunofuji, Takayasu, Kaisei, and Kyokushuho round out the leaders. Kaisei and Takayasu face off tomorrow, guaranteeing someone will be 8-1 and kachi-koshi.
